STEP 1: INQUIRY & SCHOOL VISIT
After the Admissions Inquiry Form has been submitted, the Admissions Office will contact you concerning the next step for your family. We would be glad to welcome you for a visit to our campus.
STEP 2: ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY ASSESSMENT
An English Language Proficiency Assessment shall be required for those students, grades 1-12, who are not native English speakers or who have not completed a significant part of their educational experience in an English language setting.
You must contact the Admissions Office to schedule this assessment. The cost is S$200 payable at the time of testing. The S$200 language assessment fee is not refundable under any circumstance. The assessment includes reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Students in grades 1-8 may be accepted if they score at the intermediate level or better. Students in grades 9-12 may only be accepted if they score at the proficient level. There is no English assessment required in pre-kindergarten or kindergarten. Students who do not meet the minimum English requirement must wait for a period of 6 months to retest.
STEP 3: APPLICATION
Applications for admissions are submitted via an online system. Upon request, you will be sent a link to the online admissions system where you will complete the application and submit required documents. Applications and supporting documents must be submitted via the online application system. Applications are not considered complete and will not be reviewed until the application fee has been paid.
Once you have completed and submitted your application, the admissions department will contact you for any additional information that might be needed during the application assessment.
All applicants must submit a physical examination form signed by a doctor.For K4 - 8th grade applicants, ICS will accept applications throughout the school year to be considered.
